COLUMBUS — “At stake is an AEP proposal to build 400 megawatts of solar power, generated across two solar panel farms, in Highland County, south of Clinton County.

The utility wants to develop a total of 900 megawatts of renewable energy production in Ohio.

AEP contends the project would be a job-creator, supporting 4,000 jobs, including 113 permanent manufacturing jobs in the solar infrastructure supply chain.

…Evidentiary testimony before the PUCO is expected to last two weeks.”
